Concrete Cowboy, Legally Blonde, and The Time Traveler’s Wife are on this week’s list of Netflix newcomers.

Sony Pictures

Friends With Benefits

To give you an idea of what pop culture was like in 2011, Friends with Benefits was one of two rom-coms to debut that year with nearly-identical plots about sex-only relationships. Only one of them is worth watching, and thankfully, it’s this one.

Coming April 1

MGM Studios

Legally Blonde

Astoundingly, this year marks the 20th anniversary of this film — one of the most-lauded comedies of the millennium. And with the franchise’s third installment set to arrive next year, it’s high time to revisit Elle Woods and her unlikely legal education.

Coming April 1

Warner Bros. Pictures

The Time Traveler’s Wife

Yes, this romance may be overly schmaltzy, and its sci-fi storyline sometimes seems out of place, but anyone who claims they don’t get a little misty-eyed watching this star-crossed couple’s plight is a monster.

Coming April 1

Transition Studios

White Boy

True crime aficionados are sure to enjoy this 2017 documentary about Richard Wershe Jr., aka “White Boy Rick,” a teenaged FBI informant and alleged drug kingpin in 1980s Detroit.

Madame Claude

If style is what you’re after, look no further. Set in 1960s Paris, this original film has more panache than it knows what to do with. It’s based on the real-life Madame Claude, Fernande Grudet, whose clients allegedly included the likes of Marlon Brando and JFK.

Coming April 2

Netflix

The Serpent

A joint production between Netflix and the BBC, this limited series crime drama follows the murderous trail of real-world French serial killer Charles Sobhraj, who murdered at least a dozen young tourists on Southeast Asia’s “Hippie Trail” in the 1970s.
